wow. I thought I had it bad. I always thought that since the time when I was a little kid and I accidentally took a bath too long my mom burned 1 of my pokemon games as punishment for using so much water that I was really poor. and now we can hardly pay to keep the internet. I thought I was poor.

There are times when I feel like letting the world crash down on me and end. But this message made me think of all the little things and how to enjoy life. Thanks.

This poster is extremely well done. It's very well designed and impactful, and gets the message across effectively.

However ... I'm confused. I know this was published more than two years ago, but I'd like to know where most of this data came from.

For example, using Wolfram|Alpha (www.wolframalpha.com), we may easily discern that the current amount of people over 15 who are illiterate (cannot read) is actually only 725 million.

The other stats I'm honestly not sure of; though I assume that they may be inaccurate as well.

This poster, while effective, would certainly, in my opinion be more effective with accurate statistics. :) Just some constructive criticism for you.

Thanks for sharing this awesome piece.

Brilliant. And yes, first of charities I give to is literacy. It's the one cause that makes a difference across the board. I live in Arkansas and yes, the adult illiteracy here isn't just a regional joke. It's real and it's ugly. Thank you for this poster. It's made me feel good and awful all at the same time.

This is an amazing poster, and it's amazingly structured. However, I see one error with the information contained in it, and that error sticks out too much for me to ignore it.

The poster comes in English. That means that if you can read the poster, you can read in English. But if you don't know how to read in English, you can't read the poster. Since the poster tells you that you're fortunate if you can read the message, does that mean that you're not fortunate if you don't know English even if you know how to read in any other language?

The message is wonderful, but I'd feel terrible if I didn't try to help you make it accurate.

pretty good point. thank you for being civilized about your opinion and taking the time to say it in such a well-mannered way, i appreciate it. and i'm glad you liked the poster.

No problem!

Your other posters are also really good. I'm looking at this one: [link] and I can't give you enough thumbs up! It's pathetic how much the media has perverted our sense of being, isn't it?

Even if that last part about not being fortunate if you can't read English, the "reader" would never know about it because he/she wouldn't be able to read the words on the poster that say so anyway.

It doesn't make me grateful and it shouldn't, it makes me want to do something about it and that is what really matter. Stop living in your soap bubble and do something!

i'm sorry about that. this wasn't supposed to anger you, only make you count your blessings.
